An   ___________ is the area where there is a continuous transition between two ecosystems without a clear dividing line between them in terms of species composition

  1. Edge
  2. Ecocline
  3. Ecotones
  4. Strata

hintHint:

An ecocline is an area where there is a continuous transition between two ecosystems without a clear dividing line between them in terms of species composition.

The correct answer is: Ecocline


    • An ecocline is an area where there is a continuous transition between two ecosystems without a clear dividing line between them in terms of species composition.
    • When there is not a sharp boundary between the communities, a gradation occurs from one ecosystem to another.
    • This kind of gradation is called ecocline.
